The International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems was initiated by the Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) and the Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (GADRI) of the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University, Japan, in 2015. Since then the conference has moved around MENA countries, including Egypt, Oman, Morocco, Tunisia, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Sudan.
The annual series has various objectives: 1) to form a platform for networking and sharing experiences and data among some MENA countries, scientists and authorities, 2) to stimulate cooperation among researchers in fundamental and applied sciences towards Wadi flash food (WFF) research, 3) to introduce Japanese technologies to help in WFF protection and ground harvesting, and 4) to develop new creative ideas and projects to adapt to and mitigate WFFs.
